Japanese bigeye

The Japanese bigeye lives in the reef-associated, marine, depth range 80 - 100 m environment.

The annual quality rejection rate average of Japanese bigeye tuna was 6.04% and ranged from 1.3% to 12.4%. The overall mean rejection rate of bigeye tuna from the Taiwanese fleet was 7.1%. The average weight of rejected fish was significantly lower than market grade fish. More

The striped Japanese Bigeye, Pristigenys niphonia is offered from time to time from the Indo-Pacific, as is the Popeye Catalufa, Pristigenys serrula (Gilbert 1891), from the eastern Pacific, generally from Mexico. The latter pictured here in an aquarium. More
